What is Snapper?

Snapper is a simple and elegant screenshot program. You can use Snapper to easily create images from the selection you make and save them to your computer or upload them to the internet.

How does it work?

The application is built with simplicity in mind. I like having a clear looking and clean interface and I hope that I achieve this with every program I make. Below here you will see a simple animation of how the program works and how you can very quickly make your first screenshot with it.

Why create this program

I have been looking into creating a program like this since I was busy creating the client for my good friend and hoster Guido. We played with the idea of implementing this type of program in that client too. Tho I was not able to do it at the time because of my knowledge back then and the time required to write such a program.
